Microsoft Teams is used by many NHS organizations. In March 2020, when the success of the Covid-19 pandemic came, NHS Digital launched Microsoft Teams across the NHS to support remote work.
Between March 16 and 20, all NHSmail users in England and Scotland had access to Teams, Microsoft’s workplace collaboration platform that is part of the Office365 suite.
The launch of the software was accelerated to help NHS teams better communicate and collaborate around their responses to Covid-19 and counteract the major risks associated with the virus.
By October 2020, more than 65 million messages had already been sent through the platform since it was launched.
